Overview

Download a FREE writing guide to accompany this eBook. Send your Barnes and Noble purchase order confirmation number to the publisher and the PDF file will be emailed to you. “The Twelve Steps - A Spiritual Journey” is the first twelve-step workbook written within a Christian context. It is the ideal guide for adults who seek God's grace and healing from the injuries and pain that are part of their life events and experiences.

It is designed and field-tested to support individuals on their path toward wholeness. The journey is one of surrender, and the writing exercises in the book gently lead the reader to a proper dependence on God, rather than on a false trust in self. The book combines the Twelve Steps with biblical principles, and begins the process of one's journey toward lasting change and renewal.

The workbook adapts the Twelve Steps that were written over seventy five years ago when Alcoholics Anonymous was founded. This program teaches us how God uses the healing power of the Twelve Steps as a way to restore the lives of countless individuals. Members of Alcoholics Anonymous carry the healing message to others, acknowledging that they know what it feels like to be broken by life and mended by God.

This book was written by people in recovery who have experienced the healing love of God and the transforming power of working the Twelve Steps. The authors approach recovery from a traditional twelve-step perspective, and they also understand the spiritual basis and Christian roots of the Twelve Steps and recognize Jesus Christ as their Higher Power. It is dedicated to all those who have found healing through this spiritual program, and who continue to choose to share their experience, strength and hope with those still searching.

The workbook is designed to be used in groups and contains several useful and interesting ways to apply the twelve-step principles. For companion books refer to Meditations for the Twelve Steps - A Spiritual Journey, and, Prayers for the Twelve Steps - A Spiritual Journey.

    A Life Changing Journey Awaits You!

    This book changed my life! I went from having disfunctional/co-dependent relationships that lasted 1-3 months to being happily married with three children. I thank the Lord for this journey!

    Easy to Use

    The exercises in this book, and the acknowledgement of a chaotic home life as well as the need for healing of all kinds of destructive behavior set it apart from other 12-step approaches. The book is 'not ashamed of the Name above all names' and introduces the amazing healing power of Jesus Christ.

    A very effective healing process

    Am now in my 25th year of an AA/ACA twelve step recovery process. My faith journey was deepened, and many long standing struggles were healed by including this book with my step study group. The writing and journaling were particularly powerful and effective. Am very grateful for the insights and healing that manifested as part of using the material.
